Oney Lorcan (now and previously known as Biff Busick) has returned to in-ring action. This comes after the standard no-compete clause he was constricted to after his WWE/NXT release finally came to an end. Lorcan has been wrestling since 2008, and even before his run in NXT, was an indie pro wrestling scene veteran.

He was in Providence, Rhode Island just last night for Beyond Wrestling’s Beyond Wrestling 91 event. He faced SLADE in quite the violent match. The victor was of course Biff, which was certainly appropriate since it was his first day back on the job, so to speak.

Oney Lorcan’s pro wrestling resume reads like an epic saga of pro wrestling really, as it is quite storied. He trained at the Chaotic Training Center at the start of his pro wrestling adventure and after wrestling for that promotion for some time, Lorcan, who is a native Bostonian, moved to Calgary, Alberta Canada. It was there that he underwent training with the legendary Lance Storm.

Of course Storm was trained at the heralded Hart Dungeon. Biff Busick can be considered a pro wrestling scholar however, because his training didn’t stop there. After his time under Lance Storm’s instruction, he moved to Dallas, Texas to be trained by the equally legendary Funaki. So he is well-schooled in the art of pro wrestling for sure.


He would go on to wrestle for Combat Zone, Evolve, Pro Wrestling Guerilla and other promotions before finally landing in WWE officially in 2017 after various sporadic appearances for the company. We all know how that turned out – his release from the company on November 4th of last year – a release he requested and was granted.

It now seems that his plan of returning back to the circuit is well underway. This event marks the first of hopefully many. As for where else he’ll be wrestling next, that’s still all up in the air, but if anything develops, like say a contract with AEW or even Impact Wrestling, we’ll keep you posted as always, dear readers.
